Seems that at one time the Horizon was a league to try and get into, times have changed

UIC has some quality Olympic sports, but their basketball teams have contributed nothing to the Horizon League since we have been members.

Since we joined, the league has moved to the east and become more compact.  Excellent travel for us now. Some of us remember that former league when we were forced to send our teams from Connecticut to Alabama to Utah and points in-between.  Now there are three league teams in Ohio, one just outside in metro Cincinnati, two (Robert Morris and Fort Wayne) very near the Ohio border, and two (Detroit and Oakland) a short drive from Ohio.  From a cost efficiency standpoint, this is very important for us.
